Mr Bean star sells the supercar he crashed twice for undisclosed amount after putting it on market for 8 million with specialist car dealer Taylor and Crawley

Rowan Atkinson has made a bumper profit after selling the 8 million supercar he famously crashed twice in one of the UK's biggest ever deals.

The comic actor bought his beloved McLaren F1 in 1997 for around 540,000. In 2011, after crashing into a hedge in Oxfordshire, his insurance company was handed a 910,000 repair bill in what is thought to be the biggest-ever single car insurance claim.
